More about the provenance Oushak, antique | Turkey

Oushak is located in Western Anatolia (Turkey). It has an old and famous carpet tradition. Oushak belongs to the pioneer cities of the Oriental rug. There are pieces from the 16th century in Turkish museums on display. In the 17th century Oushaks have been made in high quantities for the Christian churches, and court dynasties of Europe. great artists of that time immortalized Oushak rugs in their paintings and by this contributed to the history of the hand made Oriental rug. Some Oushak designs which had the yellow Arabasque design on red ground were named after painters like Hans Holbein and Lorenzo Lotto. Oushak is a provenance of unique history and significance.

This Oushak, antique has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
